wipa training with big fish training: four ways to become a better manager 

26 july 2018, 18:00 - 19:30

As part of a series of training events, Women in Public Affairs presents 'four ways to become a better manager' with Emma Ewing from Big Fish Training. This event is kindly sponsored and hosted by full-service communications and market research agency Cicero Group.

This session is a 60 minute bite-sized training, ideal for new managers, and will cover the following four points to help understand how good managers in Public Affairs set themselves up for success:

  1. The number one action to take every day to ensure that you improve as a manager;
  2.  How to make staff development easy
  3. What to say and do when giving difficult feedback
  4. The biggest mistake most managers make – and how to avoid it.

14 september 2018, 08:30 - 10:00

Join us at Cicero Group for a fascinating conversation with Rebecca Lawrence, Chief Executive of the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime.

Rebecca has had a successful career in the civil service, spanning HM Treasury and the Home Office before joining the Mayor’s Office as Chief Executive of the Office for Policing and Crime. She has led teams and organisations whose subject areas are in the centre of the public gaze: Europe at the launch of the Euro; health spending in the early 2000s; climate change policy at the time of the Stern Review and the UK Climate Change Act in 2005, counter-terrorism after 7/7 and now policing and crime in London.

A registration link for this event will be circulated nearer the time.
